In brief: Avoid

7 month old babies are basically on breast milk or formula and starting solids slowly.
Keep in mind that you are giving them the building blocks of nutrition and they are learning about food, consistency and flavor. Natural home made veggies and fruit have plenty of flavor with out adding anything else.

In brief: Not a little adult

People often think babies want the same things an adult or older child has developed a taste for over their formative years.
Not true! babies have no memory of a favored treat & most feel they do not distinguish much more then sweet/sour/hot/cold & texture.Xs sweets may lay the groundwork for abnormal sweet cravings later & added salt has effects on kidney function.I rec no seasonings period.
